There are some faint stains.
Although, the condition of this scroll is not bad.
A Zen Kanji phrase is drawn powerfully with Japanese brush and black Sumi ink.
The phrase describes the direct translation as "Yatagarasu bird emerges here".
Yatagarasu bird is a mythical being.
Its appearance is like a crow, but, it has three legs, and it lives in the sun.
When the bird emerges, miracles will happen.
